Schlitz was cheaper. Schmidt's had the cool looking crown thingie on it so it had to be more expensive.

Both were brewed using water from the Schuylkill River so they had to be ass nasty.

Rolling Rock was what the rich kids drank.........

I always thought Schlitz was from Milwaukee. Regardless I don't miss either.

In the 80's we called it the petroleum-based river.

Haffenreffer. More bang for the buck and you got to collect the rebus tops.

I had friends that worked at the old DAP (Durham Athletic Park - site of Bull Durham file) and they counted cups. So for a $2 ticket and a $3 initial cup, you could drink away a spring/summers' night to single A ball. What did they serve? The Schiltz Malt Liguor Bull (of course). The simple pleasures...

Well that is from PA although Schmidt's was a beer brewed in Philly. I cringe when i think about the potential water sources used for brewing a local beer in Philly in the 70s.

When i was in college we used to drink another PA beer that only came in returnable bottles and cost about as much as the bottle deposit. It was called Yeungling. I wonder if anyone can get that beer anymore........

You guys and gals up in PA should try some of the brews from Stoudt's, along the turnpike part way between Lancaster and Reading.

Really? You don't know about Yuengling?? Not being a smart ass, but do you no longer drink??

Yuengling has been thee trendy beer for at least the last 5 or 6 years. along the lines of what Coors Light or corona used to be for yuppies back in the day. I'm pretty sure this trend extends beyond the Philly region, but perhaps it doesn't.

I was the one being a smart ass. Its up and down the east coast. They actually make the stuff in two other sites now including one in Florida. I have a friend who owns a high end beer store here in the ATL and he refers to it as the best available "mass produced" beer. No where near bud or miller but hardly the stuff brewed for PA coal miners.

The had a great story about it on NPR a few weeks ago. 6th generation family owned. The next generation is all female. Apparently the most common question on brewery tours in Pottsville, is whether they are married yet.

My inlaws are in NJ and its their favorite beer. Thats okay because they used to drink some real crap and now i know when i visit the beer will be quaffable.

Oh indeed we can get Yuengling!

Yes, the water has always been questionable. People still tell me not to drink the tap water, but I've been drinking it since I moved here in 1986 and won't stop now. The joke is that you used to have to *chew* the water here ...
